TrueUSD is a stablecoin that you can
redeem 1-for-1 for US dollars

Raising the Standards


We wanted a simple stablecoin, without the need to trust some company’s hidden bank account or special algorithm. Our legal framework enables you to exchange USD directly with an escrow account – we never touch the funds. Our open source smart contracts ensure a 1:1 parity between TrueUSD and USD in the accounts.


Why Escrow Accounts?


As one of the most widely used legal contracts for asset management, escrow accounts enable regular attestations and complete legal protection for token holders. Read the FAQ to learn more.

How it Works

We work with multiple trust companies that already manage billions of dollars. Pass a KYC/AML check, and send USD to a trust company with an escrow agreement. When they verify your funds, their API instructs our smart contract to issue the equivalent TrueUSD to your public Ethereum address.

To redeem USD, you pass a KYC/AML check, send the smart contract your TrueUSD tokens from a registered Ethereum address, and then the escrow bank will send you funds. This way, the TrueUSD system does not touch the funds, and the trust companies do all purchase and receipt of your money through escrow accounts.
